Ekphrastic afternoon

while sitting at a local literary Louvre
with artists and some other radicals
waiting for return of grammatical groove
that had left me on today's sabbatical

I stumbled for some heartfelt words
to share with you of artistic notions
of whether art is abstract or more absurd
can it cure our ills with colourful potions

and quietly the souls walked the walls
of painted lands and many female forms
to search their own inspiration's calls
outside their box of artistic norms

macroed with micro muted brush lines
of sultry legs and strong countenance
whatever treasure is sought we will find
with some ingrained artful provenance

like Samuel Morse as student of masters
copied Da Vinci from the Parisian museum
hued new light on Mona Lisa to recast her
and express his own artistic freedom

we give out hope of showing of ourselves
that bit of soul our heart holds close
down new pathways that we delve
our hands stretch toward divine, almost

Goode, Lovely poetry!!!!

Enigmatic write but solved by the author in the end for those who still had some questions. Transparent to some degree for us to fill the gaps, to visualize and do some painting in mind. Just a poem for us to learn how to read poetry: not once, not twice, but several times in succession, from different angles, digging deeper to find the illusive truth. Yours are always special, dear Poet, thank you for sharing!bouquet
